states according to u.s. authorities. this security camera from the airport in bulgaria shows a young man with long hair, it could be a wig, pacing nervously back and forth inside the airport. he is dressed like a tourist. the explosives were reportedly if his backpack. u.s. authorities are cooperating with the bulgarians and the israelis to try and figure out who was behind the attack that left five israeli tourists dead. israel's prime minister blamed iran, its defense minister blamed hezbollah which just yesterday released and posted on their web site a graphic description of how iran's revolutionary guard would go about closing the strait of hormuz by targeting u.s. aircraft carriers in the persian gulf. it was provided to us by the middle east media research insert. the bulgarians and israelis are in touch, we're told, with president obama's top national security adviser, john brennan, about the attack in bulgaria. megyn? megyn: jennifer, thank you. >>> well, coming up, what if israel does retaliate? in our next hour, we're going to sit down with ambassador dan gillerman who will wal
